In EYFS we work on a skills based curriculum. We use stories and events to hook the children's interests and motivate them to learn.
This half term our topic has been 'Down at the Bottom of the Garden'. We have look at 4 stories-
1. What the ladybird heard by Julia Donaldson- We read and wrote rhyming strings, we learnt about doubling, drew maps of our school and worked on acting out the story in small groups.
2. Christopher's Caterpillars by Charlotte Middleton- We learnt about the life cycle of a butterfly, practised reading and understanding simple sentences and started learning the story of numbers.
3. Christopher Nibbles by Charlotte Middleton- We continued learning about the story of numbers, we looked at the life cycle of a dandelion, looked at telling time to O'clock and thought about how to write non-fiction information.
4. Supertato by Sue Hendra- We are learning to share objects in maths, we are learning to read and write simple sentences using tricky words and are thinking about how to be healthy.
